  • I REJECT THE CULTURAL PRACTICE OF WINNING/ACHIEVING AT ANY COST

    Life and my prayers for Fearlessness have presented me with the work book activities and lessons on the

    Concept and Practice of

    WINNING/ACHIEVING AT ALL COSTS

    and all the separate elements involved

    The concept of WINNING

    The concept of at ANY Cost

    and the Price

    I believe that a need to WIN, is one of the fear based needs I have to stalk.

    I myself am not a competitive person,

    but as an extension of the need to Be Right

    I find the Need to Win, or Achieve regardless,

    sometimes pops itself into my life.

    WHY?

    DO I justify my existence by winning?

    making life a competition of human AGAINST human

    instead of competition against Self

    are 'the winners' the 'achievers' more deserving ....

    and does this over ruling fact justify our need to win.

    Is

    ~*~*~ 'THE TRUTH' ~*~*~

    In order to

    GET,

    I NEED to

    BE

    IN

    THE

    Winners Circle

    SOOOOO?????

    do only Winners

    get LOVE

    find SECURITY

    earn PEACE

    achieve PROSPERITY

    attain JUSTICE

    require FAIRNESS

    have KINDNESS

    can access LUXURY

    can claim SANITY

    AND

    HOW MANY WINNERS CAN THERE BE

    before the concept is diluted

    and the need for even more

    'EXCLUSIVE Winners'

    is created

    ....and then comes the whole investigation into

    the Cost of Winning.

    It seems that when the competition for Winning gets so packed,

    there becomes a

    ACHIEVE AT ANY COST

    mentality

    this mentality and the sometimes immoral actions that result

    are accepted

    and sanctioned

    by the Competitors

    ...... and the non winners?

    by default

    whether,

    because they are led to believe that this is a fair competition

    in which all, including themselves, have a chance,

    or

    because their weakened state of non winning has rendered them powerless

    they too accept the status quo of 'Win at any Cost,

    and in physical reality,

    it is them, that bear the brunt of the Cost dynamic here

    But the attitude and practice of WIN AT ANY COST, has cost the winners too.

    The Price is not as visible as the plight of the down trodden, but it is there

    by living as if there no consequences to wrongness,

    basic HUMANE behavior is sacrificed

    and a Poverty of Soul is attained

    INTEGRITY is out the window in favor of what we can GET AWAY WITH

    GREED and it's complexities, replaces a Simple CLEAR existence

    CALLOUS NON CARING in the name of I take care of, or for, ONLY my own

    PRIVACY often disguised as SECURITY, or vice versa, has taken over common neighborliness and community

    these are all practices of people that are SCARED

    because when you treat the non winners so bad,

    you have to be scared, lest you become one.

    I MYSELF HAVE FOUND MYSELF IN A NEED TO WIN POSITION THIS WEEK

    I FOUND THAT I HAD EXCUSED AWAY MY INTEGRITY

    HAD ADOPTED GREED IN THE NAME OF VINDICATION

    DID NOT CARE WHO OR IF, I DAMAGED ANYONE OR THING

    AND PROTECTED MYSELF ONLY,

    WITHOUT REGARD TO CONSEQUENCES FOR COMMUNITY OR WORLD FAIRNESS

    ALL this while, or by, disregarding the Truth;

    that my own Energy and Actions DO MATTER on a Universal level.

    that I Create the world's reality just as much as anyone and can change it only if I change mySelf to be that which I want the world to BE

    As With IN so with OUT

    Be the Change You want to See

    We are but a Microcosm of the Universe

    can I blame the entities I sling mud at,

    if when confronted by them,

    I do as they do

    in the name of

    Winning the Game

    NO!!

    SO in this moment

    I back OFF

    YOU WIN

    short term and

    on paper

    but in the

    END OF IT ALL

    I

    with my

    Simple,

    Caring,

    Gentle,

    Generous

    INTEGRITY intact WAY

    of

    LOVE WINS

    truly

    am

    THE

    WINNER

    and the cost????

    the price is

    Fearlessly being willing to be looked on and treated

    like the

    LOOSER

    in a game in which

    winning just does not feel attractive any more

    YAY for changing the rules to

    LOVE WINS
